Understanding Joint Care & Arthritis

Joints connect our bones together and allow us to move in many positions. They face an absurd amount of wear and tear with excessive use and when heavy weight is applied. Sufferers of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis know that joint pain can feel stiff, inflamed, and radiating. Discover informative articles, helpful tips, and customer stories to help relieve joint and arthritis pain.

Introduction to Joint Care & Arthritis

Arthritis is a joint disorder that causes inflammation in your joints and causes localized joint pain. There are hundreds of arthritis forms and related diseases but there are three main types:

 

  • Osteoarthritis (OA)
  • Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)
  • Psoriatic arthritis (PsA)

The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis (OA): A degenerative condition where the joints wear down and the cartilage covering the end of the bones gradually breaks down.

 

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA): An autoimmune disease whereby the immune system attacks parts of the body and leads to inflammation and severe joint damage.

 

Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA): Inflammation of the skin and joints, which can lead to swelling and discoloured areas.

 

There is no cure for these types of arthritis but reducing inflammation can help decrease pain and slow joint damage.
